Management has no clue
Current employee (Current Employee), TexasJuly 17, 2014
Pros: still have good benefits
Cons: about to lose those good benefits
Management at the plant level has no idea how to run a plant. They have installed a top heavy management team that pushes a resource starved operations and maintenance team to the limit. They have created so many departments that communication is nonexistent. So many systems have been turned over to contractors that they might as well change the name on the sign out front.

Overall good marks as a work place.
Manager HRIS Americas (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: good location, benefits and salary programs.
Cons: failure by some in corporate hr to recognize sufficiently the value of manufacturing associates.
Typical day included problem solving for both local and field locations as it might relate to the HRPR system and its interface to the new Global HR system and the interfaces to the various benefits. Management relied on associates to uphold the company image and perform in a manner befitting the corporate culture. Hardest part of the job generally involves contractors who may need more explanation to understand the value of service to our own associates. Most enjoyable part of the job was providing the level of service to field associates and in particular to employees in outlying locations and to those retirees who may need assistance. I retired October 1, 2012 and have since found that the interaction of work is very much missed. My health is excellent and I have a strong desire to return to the work force.
